Summer Wellness Special

Offer Has Now Ended

Due to such a positive response to our Summer Wellness Special we have decided to make this a permanent addition to our routine consult list. This includes a full physical examination, dental examination and float using our new dental scope, vaccination for tetanus and strangles, faecal egg count and an arthritis check.

Unfortunately our $100 discount has finished; as such the cost for this annual health and wellness exam is $320. This will also include recommendations and advice for the year ahead.

Please call the clinic or head online to book in!
